The Novel Project Writing Seminar With Graeme Simsion

Sat 13 April at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Graeme Simsion is a bestselling novelist, popular seminar leader and author of The Novel Project: A Step by Step Guide to your Novel, Memoir or Biography, with a track record of ‘getting it done’.

In his seminar, Graeme will cover the end-to-end process of writing, from premise to proofreading, as described in The Novel Project.

Participants will learn:

  • How to take control of their creativity
  • How to create credible, complex characters
  • How to structure their novel using proven storytelling principles
  • How to deal with crises and problems, including writer’s block
  • How to work with beta readers and editors
